FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
Individual therapy sessions cost £50.
Couple's therapy sessions cost £75.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
My private practice is based in my comfortable consulting room in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL IT TAKE?
Counselling is by definition a different experience for every client. We all have different journeys through life and different challenges to face. You will decide when you reach the end of this stage of your journey, with support from me, of course. If you have a specific goal in mind, you may only need a few sessions; others might need around twenty; others might need more ongoing support. My solutions-based approach means that many clients will benefit from counselling almost straight away.
HOW LONG DO SESSIONS LAST?
Each session lasts 50 minutes.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN MY FIRST SESSION?
Please try not to worry too much about your first session. You don't need to have a plan for how it will go, or what you will say. There are no expectations for you to come prepared. You can begin wherever you like, safe in the knowledge that I am there as your guide and support. If by the end of the session you decide it's not for you, then that's fine too. I may be able to suggest other ways for you to move forward which might suit you better.
IS COUNSELLING CONFIDENTIAL?
Yes, counselling is confidential. What you talk about with me stays in the room. The only time I am required to share with other parties is when I judge a client to be at serious risk of harm to themselves or to others.
